    Best supplier of parts for L4's in UK?

    Ey'up!

    Any suggestions for locating small parts for the L4 while in the UKicon? Leeds area.

    Specificaly looking for 7.62 extractors plus spring and spring bar. Would also take some Mk I Bren parts sources as well.

    Cheers.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction). Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ... BDL Ltd. - Specializing in British and Commonwealth weapons Chuck in Denver ...

    The 7.92 extractor is identical to the 7.62 version except for the marking and the spring and stay were the same as the .303 versions.

    Are there any particular dealers who have decent stock of parts? Wouldn't mind finding a MkI butt plate with folding shoulder tab.
